Add the Kanex USB-C to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter to your Mac Accessories assortment

Best Buy should get the Kanex USB-C to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter (MFR # KU3CGBT) into its stores as soon as possible. Here are some arguments FOR this:

 

(1) Demand for the new MacBooks is at an all-time high. A check for availability of these are various Best Buy stores shows them unavilable with extended backorder times. I know from people that work at Best Buy that as soon as stores are receiving these they're selling either by online purchase or in-store pickup. 

 

(2) Apple does not make a competiting adapter and the price ($29.99) of this adapter is in-line with other third-party (Belkin, Insignia) adapters.

 

(3) It is an essential adapter for business custmoers and students alike. My local store is located near a University and I can tell you that they do not allow students to have ANY wireless devices enabled in on-campus housing. This means that the Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter and this adapter are both going to be in VERY high demand. Judging from last year, you could not find a Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter within a 150-mile radius of where I live because neither Best Buy or Apple Store was prepared for the increase in demand on this SKU and were both consequently sold out.

 

(4) Kanex accessories generally have 4-5 star reviews which shows they are of sufficient quality and are well-received by customers. 

 

(5) You will see USB-C showing up in other non-Apple devices like Chromebooks and PCs as adoption picks up later on this year and next year (example: Google's new flagship Chromebook, the Pixel, is already supporting it so I don't anticipate other OEMs being far behind on adding it to their newer models too).

This product is currently available on BestBuy.com, but I can certainly see where carrying a product like this in our stores would have advantages. Who else would like to see us carry the Kanex adapter in our stores?
